If you’re like me, you love the idea of finding the perfect skin enhancer which will make your skin seem to “glow” but have found yourself overwhelmed by all of the choices available these days.
While I LOVE browsing the cosmetics and skin care aisle, I find it confusing if I don’t do my research before going. As an Marcelle Moms ambassador I have had the opportunity to research and try out the Marcelle skin enhancer line and feel like I have come to understand the differences between the BB, CC and DD creams.
How to Choose the Right Skin Enhancer
They key to choosing the right skin enhancer is to understand what your skin needs. Forget the shade of colour for a moment, Marcelle’s skin enhancers are available in different shades which adjust for the pigment to which it’s applied. More importantly we must ensure we’re choosing the perfect skin enhancer for our skin and environment.
Marcelle has 3 skin enhancers which I’m featuring today. Their BB Cream is the choice for anyone looking for a natural looking coverage with hydrating properties. If you happen to have skin such as my own which has elements of aging such as sun spots, dark spots and uneven tones the CC Cream is the choice for you. Ask yourself what conditions your skin is exposed to; allergens, irritations, sun etc. If you’re exposed to these you’ll want to consider the DD cream as it’s formulated specifically to protect.
B·B CREAM = BEAUTY BALM
Marcelle’s BB Cream is a multi-purpose skin care cream for all ages and all skin types which is more than a tinted moisturizer or simple make-up base. It perfects the skin to reveal a more even epidermis and well-hydrated, flawless complexion, all in one.
Use it alone as a tinted moisturizer; over your moisturizer to unify your complexion and reduce the appearance of blemishes, or apply as a make-up base under foundation for total coverage and improved stay-on power. BB Cream is offered in three shades and is suitable for a wide variety of complexions thanks to its self-adjusting pigments that transform and adapt to skin tone. BB Cream is hypo-allergenic and perfume free. Suitable for all ages and skin types.
C·C CREAM = Complete Correction
Marcelle’s C·C CREAM offers the same benefits as BB Cream, but with more long-term skin care benefits and nourishing ingredients. It perfects uneven skin tone and helps reduce dark spots. Its pure 24K gold infused formula provides deep radiance, more coverage and a lighter texture than BB Cream leaving your skin smoother, firmer and deeply moisturized.
Pure 24K gold has been infused into Marcelle’s Complete Correction Cream to diminish the appearance of dark spots and skin tone imperfections that can be caused by sun exposure or the aging of skin. The formula’s lightweight consistency and ingredients provide full coverage and leaves your skin feeling smoother, firmer and highly moisturized. Radiance is boosted to give your complexion a perfect glow! With SPF 35.
D·D CREAM = Daily Defense
Going beyond a BB Cream, Marcelle’s D·D CREAM is an all-in-one tinted cream that not only corrects but really protects your skin against pollution, stresses, and UVB rays.
With its platinum-infused formula, Marcelle’s DD Cream reinforces skin’s natural defences and improves the overall appearance of skin by reducing impurities. Its powerful ingredients make it a fearsome shield against environmental aggressors such as pollution, stresses, and UVB rays. With SPF 25.
Summary of Skin Enhancer Choices
All three of these skin enhancers provide fantastic coverage for the complexion, they have proven that even my pinky complexion can be evened out in a “natural” looking way. I have found that each hydrate my skin and I achieve the coverage I’m after without drying out or having to reapply throughout the day.
In the end my favourite is Marcelle’s C·C CREAM, I find it to feel lighter on my skin and it seems to have a bit more coverage over my sun-damaged areas.
In the mornings I begin by using the Ultra Gentle Cleansing Gel, our family has this as a staple in our bathroom. It’s safe for all ages to use and can be used wet or dry; even our young daughters have adopted a morning and night time cleansing routine!
Once my face is cleansed, I apply the New-Age 8 in 1 Power Serum which has become a fast-favourite in my regime. This serum is amazing, I’ve been using it daily for a while now and my skin feels lovely. It is as if my skin is years younger, it’s tighter and honestly has more of a glow in general.
Next I pump a wee bit of Marcelle’s C·C CREAM onto my hand and dab it over my face. I then use a brush and gently blend it over my entire face until I reach the coverage I want.
The C·C CREAM goes on smoothly and doesn’t feel heavy on my skin. I finish with a light coat of the Monochromatic Pressed Powder when I want more coverage and I’m ready to apply my cheek, eye and lip makeup.
From cleansing to powder, this takes me all of 3 minutes. This is a simple, effective skin care and enhancing regime which I’ve found I have easily adopted in my mornings. In the end I know that I have great looking skin in minutes which hasn’t broken my bank and this gal appreciates that!
